    Hey Guys

    So I've had a Smok RPM 80 for a couple months Recently I'm having this issue where the device wont turn on unless you plug it into a charger, regardless of how full the battery is.
    It will work for about an hour then rinse repeat. Anyone have this issue before?
    I tried a new battery and even new pod and coil.

    Guys I bought it from said sorry only 30 day warranty.

    I feel your pain, my RPM40 gave up a few months ago with similar symptoms.

    Throw that POS away, get a VooPoo/Vaporesso/etc. product and never look back. EVERY SINGLE SMOK item I have owned has given up, I will never buy another SMOK product ever again.

    Oh dam ok was actually looking at getting a Smok Nord X to replace it. So you rate something like the VooPoo Vinci Air is a safer bet?

    Vinci Air has been replaced with the Argus Air - I'd rather go for that which should be stocked at most big retailers already. VooPoo got it right with their PnP coil system - where all the coils fit all tanks and all devices. It reassures you that coils for them will be available from just about everywhere and for a long time.

    if your purpose is strictly MTL - I see that Vape King have Smoant Pasitos on sale for R255. I absolutely love mine, I don't think I'd ever get rid of it.

    So a little feedback on the Argus air. Have had to return the first one I got. The little magnets on the device that hold the pod down had started to come undone. So they were pulling out when you pulled the pod out. Luckily the guy at VapeRite swapped it out no questions.
